Bounty Fours Bowls Tournament

29 April 2018 - 04 May 2018

Norfolk Island is a popular lawn bowls destination, unlike some clubs in Australia and New Zealand the Norfolk greens remain open all year round. Norfolk Island makes the most of the climate by hosting tournaments throughout the year including their most popular tournament in May. Of all events it’s the Bounty Fours Bowls Tournament, an open fours competition (where teams can be men, women or mixed) that is well and truly stamped on the bowls calendar. 2018 will be the club’s 57th tournament.

Yes, bowlers come to participate in the tournament, but almost as importantly, they come to enjoy a holiday and the many visitor experiences Norfolk Island has to offer. Tours, shopping and attractions are slotted in between or after their time on the greens.

The bowling club is located in the centre of town all visitor needs are literally next door, including shops, cafes, island touring and accommodation. Driving after play is optional. Travel to the island for the Bounty Bowls or come another time of year for a social rollup, the local club member hospitality and friendship like the climate, remains a year-round constant.
